Now look what you’ve done. You’re famous. That’s you – readers and commentators. You have only gone and become online exemplars who have made “clear the sort of support you can get from a virtual network in a connected world.”
That’s according to the highly prestigious Trading As WDR blog. (“A blog containing thoughts about change, and how to achieve it…”)
WDR spotted what’s been going on here recently and has drawn attention to it.
After such high achievement, you deserve a special treat.
Spandau Ballet sang:
Give me no answers
That’s all they ever give me
But to cut a long story short, this is the moment you start getting answers. Three answers. (Four if you count the last one double.)
First, I’m going to reveal to you the answer to the question that has been bugging you since childhood. People are always asking it. And to be fair, answers are provided. But so many and so varied. It’s all so confusing.
Until now. Relax. At last – here it is.
The answer to the question: Why did the chicken cross the road? Look left. (Thanks to Us Girls Our Views for clearing that one up.)
It’s my pleasure to present to you… this short visual revelation.
Third. It’s hot here. It may be hot there.You’re sitting glowing (if you’re a woman), perspiring (if you’re a man) or sweating (if you’re a horse, like me). And you’re wondering where on earth was air conditioning invented anyway? And who had it first?
It’s your lucky day. It seems that a certain wee town’s technological reputation does not rest solely on a big ship that sank on its first voyage. (Though as the T-shirts say – It was fine when it left us.)
Air conditioning was invented at Belfast’s Sirocco works and the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast became the first building in the world to be fitted with air conditioning. (Of course it’s true, it says so here, at the bottom of the page if you follow the link.) Later the RVH became the best hospital in the world to be shot outside.
I don’t know why they needed a/c to cool down. Could they not just have opened the window and let in more rain?
And finally… Some very happy happy good news. My month long on-a-stupid-whim voluntary alcohol ban has just ended. 🙂
